that are saying farewell. see what he says about george w. bush and john mccain. this is "the daily rundown." i am chuck todd. let's get to the first reads of the morning. in the last two weeks, we polled in nine battleground states deciding the election. ohio, florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, north carolina, nevada, new hampshire. bad news for mitt romney, he doesn't lead in a single one. at best within the poll's margin of error. at worst, trails by eight points. this morning, how the nine states stack up. we said it again and again. the president's job approval rating may be the best indicator of where the bout may be. where it is more than 50, the president favored to win. iowa, florida, new hampshire, ohio, virginia, his approval rating below that, 47 or 48 in four. colorado, nevada, north carolina, wisconsin. here is a second way to breakdown the numbers. romney struggled with favorability number all year. that number underwater, more voters have unfavorable than favorable view in six states. romney is in positive territory in just three. florida, north carolina, virginia. final
the president or nominee be from your home state. >> john and i represent the same constituency, he will be elected to senate, i will be gone before he will. he is my colleague this entire time. larger than life in many respects. that has its plus and minuses, he is playing the national issues, i am doing a lot of things that relate to the state. he is very good when he focuses on a state issue. he can be effective working on a state issue as well. we have been able to divide responsibilities so it worked well for us. for me, it has been very much a plus, even when we have disagreements. quick story, first or second week in the senate, down at the table voting. i find john and i vote differently on an issue, i don't recall what it was. i said john, i sought him out. you voted yes, i was going to vote no, or vice versa, he laughed. he said we're going to vote different all the time. don't worry about it. most of the time we vote alike, of course, but the point was you don't have to do what i do just because i am doing it, and so it gave me the confidence to do what i thought was righ
them back to reality. >> senator john mccain is the only man who has debated both of these individuals. he weighed in on the expectations this morning. take a listen. >> serve and provide us -- >> it's not just that they go bankrupt, he doesn't understand -- >> comments that grabbed everybody's attention. because frankly, the candidates are too well prepared. they're well scripted. >> what you did not hear the beginning there, is the senator said i think you're going to see more viewers, than any debate in history. and then he also said he can't remember the last time that any of these things affected the outcome of a presidential race. save 1960 and 2000, have the debates ever really impacted the outcome of a race, chris kofinis? >> it's funny, i hear the debate about debates not necessarily mattering. and i actually disagree with that i think the 1980, the reagan/carter debate. the debates mattered. they matter in every election, they either reinforce a narrative in the election meaning we think we're going to vote for president obama. president obama does well in that debate and it
and had someone been disappointed with some the effects of that. then we had john mccain who really never came out and endorsed the faith community at all. and then we had a president elected and all of us were excited. i was excited with the hope and change message. hoping some good things happen. i vote for democrats. i vote for republicans. i was excited about that. after four years, looking at issues like same sex marriage, all of the life issues which the president does not stand for, and you see religious liberty being attacked as never before in this country. the faith-based community now understands what the alternative is is. and we understand that mitt romney, while some have said well, he is a mormon he is not an evangelical may not be the candidate of our religious choice, i can say with a surety that he aligns with family values, with the same sex marriage values, with the life values much more with the evangelical community than this president does. >> dr. mark smith, you are the president of ohio christian university. thanks so much for coming in and giving us your perspect
, here's john kerry. he signed a letter with other senate intelligence committee members for more info on the libya matter. take a listen to this. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> he goes on to say it's all political now. i mean, is this going to become a campaign issue? >> absolutely. you're already seeing it become a big issue on the campaign. particularly on the republican side. of course. the problem, though, is that the house and the senate both adjourned for the rest of this year, up until after the election, earlier this month, and so if this is going to be an issue that republicans wield against the obama ticket it's going to be one that they're going to have to do on the campaign trail. now, that spelled a problem for mitt romney because it's just one of the latest examples of how his campaign has turned its focus away from the economy, the number one issue the
john roberts the deciding vote that upheld president obama's health care law and sparked debate across the country. and keys to the city sold, locks smith sold a ring to an undercover reporter. a dream come true to potential terrorists, elevators, open subway gates, and access to 1 world trade center, he reportedly stole them for a measley 150 bucks and reported will i still has more keys he's trying to sell. well, miss one school lunch payment and you get the hard boiled egg special. that's the new rule at a new jersey school district. a student at two schools owes 3.10. they only get a hard bold egg, crackers and carton of milk for lunch, instead of a full meal. that was not announced until the first day of classes, they've not yet commented. >> alisyn: i think that's great, a great punishment. >> dave: yeah, you'd probably take that punishment. >> alisyn: i could happily-- >> and nothing worse, i mean, hard boiled eggs. and i don't like within 12 feet. >> alisyn: breakfast, hard boiled egg, sounds good. >> horrible. you have the mayonnaise. >> i snuck it to my wife in this chicken s
. this was politico, john harris and tim mack in reviewing your speech. the headline on it, christie deliver as primetime dud. write there's no mistaking what a successful keynote speech from chris christie would have looked like and sounded like. it would have been followed by waves of media commentary about how people had just heard the future of the republican party. judged by these standards, there's no mistaking what the new jersey governor delivered, a primetime belly-flop when notably failed to clear either of those two high bars. are you still the future of this party, do you believe? >> well, mitt romney is the future of this party, he's going to be elected president on november 6th and then from there he's going to lead our country back to greatness. if i took seriously the judgment of my speeches by jim vandehay and john harris, i would not be in this business for very long. >> governor chris christie. we're going to leave it there, thank you as always. >> great to be with you, david. >>> let me turn to the president's senior adviser, david pleuff. he said come thursday morning, t
in colorado monday night with the endorsement of legend john elway. >> what an honor. what a welcome. what a colorado welcome. thank you so much. >> the governor's first and only event ahead of tomorrow's big presidential debate was at a packed air and space museum in denver. >> people want to know who's going to win, who is going to score the punches. in my view it's not so much winning or losing or even the people t president and myself. it's about something bigger than that. >> still playing off the enthusiastic crowd, romney appeared to test out new zingers including this one on the key stone oil pipe line halted by the obama administration. >> i'm going to get that pipe line from canada if i have to build it myself. >> paul ryan was greeted by his family in iowa before kicking off a bus tour in dubuque where he emphasized the importance of the debates. >> we're entering the debate phase, the choice phase of this campaign. and this choice is ever so clear. >> president obama is hunkering down in nevada preparing for his one-on-one confrontation with romney, keeping a more low key sched
. yesterday on nbc's andrea mitchell reports, senator john kerry praised mitt romney's debate prowess and the president's limitations going into the debate. let's take a listen to this. >> it's tough i think for a president who hasn't had primaries, hasn't been out there, hasn't been debating in four years, then he only had very few debates that weren't as consequential. is the campaign seriously concerned about the president not being prepared here, laura? are these pre-emptive excuses? >> i don't think they're concerned about his being unprepared. for starters as president he is up-to-date on every world issue, any issue out there. they have spent a lot of time preparing for understanding mitt romney's record and understanding the lines of attack that are likely to come from romney. so i don't think there's going to be any question about preparation. they are concerned about some aspects of the president's performance. he does tend to sort of be a little professor didn't like. go on in settings where there is no stop watch timing his spons. so he needs to be quicker, he needs to be
-raising event including a concert with john bone jovi, katy perry and stevie wonder. >> peter alexander from virginia, thank you. ed schultz is the host of "the ed show" on msnbc. >> good morning, savannah. >> you're a supporter of the president, your viewers are a supporter of the president. i think everybody in the political spectrum believed he slipped wednesday night. >> t c again. the margin of error, winning or losing in this campaign or this election is so tight right now, he just can't do it. i mean, there's been such an effort to suppress the vote. those people are now energized after what they saw the other night. the president's team has to bounce back, get on message, be aggressive. you know, talk radio across america people were disappointed. they were frustrated. they saw the perfect opening. i got a phone call from a lady yesterday in pennsylvania who said that, you know, when i'm sitting at home and i know the material better than the president, something owes wrong. >> it's a question of whether he fought back on substance. there's also the issue of style. people said he see
in california for a fund-raiser, including a concert with john bon jovi, katy perry, and stevie wonder. >> thanks. chuck todd, nbc's political director and correspondent. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> a jobs report on one hand, the jobs added a lackluster figure, but unemployment dipped. in terms of the headline, does it benefit president obama? >> it benefits him in the tone of coverage today, right, in the way the media looks at him, in the way he's got something positive to talk about, and it is a psychological barrier. right after the democratic convention, all of that momentum a month ago the democrats had, friday after the democratic convention, a bad jobs report came out, and that did nothing to stop the president's momentum. i don't know if this does anything to stop, for instance, mitt romney's momentum. this is something we've seen in polling, that the economy is kind of baked in. while the psychological barrier gives a talking point to the president on the stump, whether it changes people's minds at this point, i don't know. >> mitt romney put out a statement righ
